Silly Haiku Wednesday

Welcome to “Silly Haiku Wednesday!”

Click here for info and background on this weekly event!

The basics:

Haiku is simple! It is 3 non-rhyming lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables respectively (a great way to use your fingers!)

This week’s theme is: Hallowe’en

My submission for this week:

Black cat, pause and look
See cloaked figures flit here… there
Full moon, witching hour.

Have a safe and fun Hallowe’en!


Next week’s theme: Water (I’m away on a beach vacation next week – yay me! – but I’ll have it set to go!)

Note: Nothing makes me happier than to see new people getting “hooked on haiku”! Keep it going to make it to the Hooked on Haiku List

    Very nicely done! I wrote mine without looking at yours first and chose orange font, too. I have a feeling we are all going to have poems more alike this week then we ever have before.

    And what beach are you visiting?

  2. Thom says:

    Well done my friend. I love it. Hope the vacation is going well. Happy Halloween :)

  14. Hi Jenn,
    Great theme for last week, have been thinking all about the past Halloweens. Your Haiku gives a great impression of the atmosphere; it’s so funny to look around at Halloween or if you are out driving, you see all sorts of people – witches waiting at the bus stop, zombees cycling down the road, ghosts in the supermarket and the Joker from Batman jump starting his car outside our house with the help of Harry Poter. An interesting evening! Hope you have a great trip and miss the storms.
